Blogger's Challenge 58 - Color Challenge

Sorry this is a day late. I complete failed to realize that yesterday was Friday until way late in the day and I did a mental head slap about not having the challenge done. So here it is finally.
This weeks challenge was another color challenge. We were to use Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, and Rose Red. Here is what I came up with:When I read this challenge I wasn't sure I was going to be able to put these colors together in a way that would be pleasing but I actually like how it came out. It looks much better irl, my camera isn't doing much for this. The layout is another one from Beate's weekend sketches.

Supplies - Stamps: Candles-unknown, Words-Amuse, Paper: SU, Misc: Crystals-KI Memories. It is colored in with Prismacolor pencils and a blender pencil. I actually did not use any Gamsol this time. I'm trying really hard to learn how to use these pencils to their fullest potential. Be sure to click on the Blogger's Challenge button on the right to see what the rest of the girls came up with.

Holy...Hot Flash... Batman!!!

It appears that I am definitely in menopause at least according to my recent blood test. I've been going through perimenopause for the last several years. You know hot flashes, night sweats and crazy cycles, etc. In the past twelve months I've only had 2 periods and the hot flashes have been worse than ever!

Symptoms of Menopause:

Irregular periods...checkHot Flashes...double checkNight sweats...checkLoss of libido...unfortunatelyVaginal dryness...some timesMood swings, anxiety...check much to my hubby & kids chagrinFatigue...yepSleep disturbances...every nightMemory lapses...not as much as hubby would hope for ;-)Headaches...noWeight gain...ehJoint pain...no more than usual Don't get me wrong...I.do.not.miss.having periods in any way shape or form. I've told the hubby for years that we were going to throw a big ol' menopause party when the time comes. The only problem with that is I'm too tired to make the arrangements...LOL. The hot flashes waking me up mul…

Guess who is Sewing...

Look what I made!!! I have not done anything creative in a very long time. Don't ask me what made me decide to give sewing a go again because I have no idea. The pattern for this bag is from Alicia Paulson and is called Jane Market Bag, you can find it on her website for only $6. It was so easy to follow the instructions. I would definitely recommend that you have a larger cutting surface and ruler to make it easier to cut the pieces out. My little 12x12 cutting surface and 6x13 clear ruler made cutting the pieces slightly difficult but not impossible.

Don't you just love the red fabric! I purchased the fabric at JoAnn Fabrics a couple of years ago to make an apron and since I had some left over thought I would use it for my first bag. The pattern calls for the use of 4 different fabrics but I decided to just use the 3. The inside of the bag is lined with the same black and white check fabric I used on the handles. These are so cute & are a great size so I will definitely …

Must Read Monday: Reapers Motorcycle Club series

A friend turned me on to the Reapers Motorcycle Club series by Joanna Wylde and I loved it!! I was so engrossed in the stories that, not only did I pull all night read-a-thons, I actually dreamed about the characters. Definitely cannot remember being able to say that about any other books I've read. The dreams even included my hubby being a Reaper and me as his old lady which surprising seemed like a perfect fit for us. I will add that if you have a problem with rough sex or women being called "property" then these books will not be for you. 

Book 1: Reaper's Property tells the story of Horse and Marie. Marie's brother steals money from the MC and after Horse takes one look at Marie decides to kidnap her as motivation for her brother to repay the money. Even though I loved the series by the end I will say that this one was not my favorite book or couple and honestly I almost did not go on except for the reassurance from my enabling friend Janice that they got be…
